Forward positions at kickoffs ...

Hi there, I was wondering thoughts on forward positions at the kickoff. Do you have the catchers deep so the are coming forward to meet the ball or have one deep and one short? For the pods do you have a "quick" pod made up of all three loosies and a lock and a "slow" pod made up of the front row and the lock or do you split them in two pods made up of a prop, a lock and two loosies and the other pod of a prop, a lock, the hooker and a loosie? Who would you tell to be the ball carrier, body movers and bridger? All thoughts welcome. CheersDave

I'm working with kids aged 10 and 11. A major problem is getting them to have some sense of position on the pitch. In other words how do I stop them all running after the ball.e

My fowards seem afraid to ruck and stand around the ruck while in the way of the scrum half trying to get the ball out to the backs. They also don't support the ball carrier while he is being tackled. Please help me with any suggestions!!!

Lineout Questions- Can you fake jump when it is your?

2 Lineout Questions that are related%3A Can you fake jump when it is your lineout? and Can defenders lift more than 1 jumper? In reviewing tape from our last match I noticed that the opposing team always had someone jump before the actual jumper was lifted. I thought I heard the commentators (Magners league game) say that it was illegal to have more than 1 person have their feet leave the ground. The same opposing team would always pre-jump their first pod before the ball was in the air. Their 2nd pod would also jump and if the ball went to that area they'd usually win it. It's my understanding that each lineout can only lift/jump a single player and NEVER before the ball leaves the hand.

I am so pleased with all of the drills and advice on rugby. I am a player for my local club and we don't have a coach at the moment so I, as a senior player, am filling that gap. With your help, the team has been able to improve our skills.

Debbie Cross Australia

What a fantastic tool. The Chalkboard and session tools make an unbelievable difference in making training plans in both time and organization. I will be instructing all of my assistant coaches that this tool must be used for all sessions during the season, so that we may build a club coaching resource library.
